Campus Area Streets to be Closed During Residence Halls Move-In

Numerous campus area streets will be closed to accommodate the more than 8,400 University of Wisconsin–Madison students who will be moving into the University Residence Halls. Traffic around all residence halls will be extremely busy on these days, and all lots near residence halls will be used for temporary unloading during move-in. Motorists should be aware of this additional congestion and expect some delays.

Required COVID Testing for Unvaccinated Employees and Those Who Have Not Submitted Their Proof of Vaccination

Last Wednesday, August 18, Chancellor Blank announced that any unvaccinated student or employee will be required to test weekly on campus. If you have not received a vaccine but would like to, UHS is offering them at no cost. If you were vaccinated off-campus, submit your vaccination records on MyUHS.

Getting Your Test Results and What to Do if You Test Positive

If you receive a positive test for COVID-19, you must isolate yourself as best as possible from others, including those you live with, to protect the health of others while you recover.
